Whatever you think of the process or compromises made along the way, it was good to see the first round of funding under the Housing Australia Future Fund Facility (HAFFF) and National Housing Accord Facility (NHAF) recently open.
As a reminder, the HAFF is a $10 billion investment fund established by the Federal Government and managed by the Future Fund. The income generated by the HAFF will be used to deliver 20,000 new social and 10,000 new affordable homes across Australia over five years. This includes housing to support acute housing needs.
